Electrical Safety Audit

Most people cringe when they hear the word “audit” because it’s a process associated with finding fault and uncovering hidden problems. It’s understandable that the idea of an audit triggers fear — no one wants to be associated with problems. Audits aren’t as intimidating as they sound. In fact, an audit is a necessary tool for you to assess things like plant operations, worker safety and plant documentation. Incorporating changes and improvements that result from your audit findings can have significant payback. So, rather than being something you should fear, an audit might be exactly what your facility needs.

If you’re operating a facility, you’re surrounded by a complex electrical system. Often, electricity is taken for granted because it’s such an integral part of plant operations. When not handled correctly, electricity can be dangerous. The National Electrical Code (NEC) has been developed and modified during the past few decades to ensure the safety of everyone working at operating facilities. You have a certain degree of responsibility to ensure your facility and staff are up to date on these codes.

Think back to the last time that you had your electrical system inspected. Can you even remember? Maybe there hasn’t been a full audit since plant operations began or the most recent major addition was completed. You might have a solid understanding of how your electrical system operates, but could your staff locate appropriate documentation in your absence in the event of an incident? It’s important that you and your staff know your way around this all-encompassing system.
